about

This is an experimental drum 'n bass piece written for 3 Tesla coils, a robotic drum kit and robotic bass guitar. A video of the track being performed is available at vimeo.com/123003833

The leads are performed by a Plasmasonic Dual Resonance Solid State Tesla Coil (DRSSTC), and the accompanying parts by 2 microBrute DRSSTCs. The Tesla coils are controlled by the Chime Red musical Tesla coil control system created by Josh Bailey and James McVay.

The bass part is played by the Mechbass robotic bass guitar which was created by James McVay and Jim Murphy.

All sounds were recorded directly from the instruments with microphones in the space shown, with no added tracks.

Big thanks to the above-mentioned people for all of their hard work, and to Victoria University of Wellington for facilitating the creation of this work.
